Never fear, fanboys/girls will save the world (economy), one blockbuster at a time

May the force be with you as you use your hard-earned allowance on movie tickets and popcorn

What is that I hear?  Spaceships and gigantic talking robots? Lasers and things blowing up? Ah, the sounds of summer movie season=the end of the recession? 

Obama may have put together an elaborate plan to break us out of this economic crisis, but Hollywood has been busy in back rooms and underground lairs working on their own stimulus package…and my friends, here it is:

May 1 – X-Men Origins: Wolverine (starring Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds and Liev Schreiber, directed by Gavin Hood).

May 8 – Star Trek (Directed by JJ Abrams**, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg and like a thousand other people, holy crap, that list is long!).

May 21 – Terminator Salvation (starring Christian “get out of my sight” Bale, Bryce Dallas Howard and Helena Bonham Carter, directed by McG**)

June 24 – Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Directed by Michael Bay**, starring Shia LeBeouf, Megan Fox, and a lot of the kids from the first movie)

July 17 – Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince (starring all the same old Brits, directed by David Yates)

August 7 – G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra (starring Channing Tatum, Dennis Quaid and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, directed by Stephen Sommers**)

Holy Bateman!

psycho1I really didn’t want the rumors to be true, but alas, where there is smoke there’s fire.

Hottie actor Christian Bale was caught on tape ranting on the set of Terminator Salvation, apparently the director of cinematography interrupted his intense concentration. Normally, this wouldn’t be that big of a deal, stars act like divas all the time. However, a few stories have come out now that Mr. Bale has a bit of an anger streak in him. Like that one where he supposedly assaulted his own mom. Yes, the charges were dropped, but we all know what that means. Momma probably has some new diamonds now.

Honestly, this kind of gives me an idea on how the guy could pull off such a compelling and seemingly authentic performance as the chilling Patrick Bateman in American Psycho. Below is a creepy clip… I just hope an intern or craft services person didn’t jump out in front of him during this scene or else, well, let’s just say I believe there would have been A LOT more F bombs…and maybe some staple guns.
